“A confident, moody, and superbly acted debut feature from Georgia Oakley.”
—Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
“Featuring a stirring breakout performance from the luminous Rosy McEwan, “Blue Jean” grounds the political with the personal — without losing sight of queer joy.”
—Jude Dry, Indiewire
In Georgia Oakley’s stunning directorial debut, BLUE JEAN, it’s 1988 England, and Margaret Thatcher’s Conservative government is about to pass a law stigmatizing gays and lesbians, forcing Jean (Rosy McEwen, in a powerhouse performance), a gym teacher, to live a double life.
As pressure mounts from all sides, the arrival of a new student catalyzes a crisis that will challenge Jean to her core. The BAFTA-nominated film won the Venice Film Festival’s People’s Choice Award, as well as four British Independent Film Awards.
